Aegis is a beast item. Very strong early and still strong all game. It's a great value just for the holder and an amazing value for the team.

The holder gets almost 2200 worth of buffs for 1925. Seems like a good deal to me.
270h = 1.5 x ruby crystal = 712.5g
30 armor = 1.67 x cloth = 500g
39 MR = 1.625 x NMM = 650g
8 dmg = .8 x long sword = 332g
== 2194.5 gp

you're already getting a bargain but the auras are now basically free.
8 dmg = 332g
12 armor = 200g
15 mr = 250g
== 782 g

that's 782g for any ally standing in your auras or over 3000g if you're in a team fight. If you can't understand that > 3000g worth of items + 2194g worth of items is a monster deal for 1925, you're bad at math or bad at the game.

Aegis is fine to rush but at the same time there are certain situations where grabbing a negatron cloak or a chainmail would be more beneficial in the short term.
